Prefill author field with current user

Thanks to Entry author permissions, we can protect entries from other authors.

I had to add an author field to my entry to make it work. However, the field is empty when I create a new entry via the control panel. I would like to have the field prefilled with the current user, since this will be the desired value 99 % of the time.

Is there any way to do this?
